Mountain pine beetle population forecast survey results

Description

Spring population forecast surveys were conducted mid-May and mid-June at number sites in Alberta. The results of these surveys, combined with the aerial surveys and ground assessments to be completed in August/September, will help the province prioritize areas for single tree treatment and timber harvest control tactics this fall and winter. This forecast predicts how successfully local beetle populations may spread this year but does not account for long-range dispersal of beetles from British Columbia, federal mountain parks or heavily-infested areas of Alberta.
